Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for June 21, 2020.
Description: Reflection for the 12th Sunday of Ordinary Time invites readers to turn their hardships into ministry by sharing how Jesus helped them.
Think of a time when you were in darkness: a sin, for example, or when you felt abandoned by God or your prayers seemed dry and your spiritual gifts seemed covered over. What did Jesus say to you at that time (perhaps through scripture or friends or a homily at Mass)? What did his whisperings tell you? His words and his guidance were good news for you!
In this Sunday’s Gospel reading (Matthew 10:26-33), Jesus says: “What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light.” He’s calling you and commissioning you and empowering you, through his Holy Spirit, to share your good news with others, so that they can hear him in their darkness. Proclaim it boldly and visibly so that those who want to hear it will stop and listen. Do not be afraid to openly share how Jesus has been working in your life and how he’s helped you grow or heal or turn away from sin.
